Anyone who has ordered the 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin has most likely received one or more backorder emails accompanied by an ever shifting array of expected shipping dates. Is the long, confusing wait finally over?
My last post which provided an update on the 2009 UHR Double Eagles came after a backorder email received from the US Mint indicating an estimated shipping date of 2/18. Many readers responded in the comments with their estimated shipping dates which ranged from 2/17 to 2/20. Most of these were for coins ordered on the first day of sales.
Today, I started seeing reader comments mentioning that their status per the US Mint’s online order tracking changed from “backordered” to “in stock and reserved” and the expected shipping date had changed to 02/06/2009, which is today.
I checked the status of my own order and saw the same 2/6 expected shipping date. You can check your own order status on the US Mint’s website here.
Are the 2009 Ultra High Relief Gold Double Eagles finally shipping today? We should find out for sure, very soon.
